The overuse of the word "Donk"
In recent sng's and tournements I have seen people talk horribly, and keep using the word donk way to much. When they lose a hand, they automatically have to blame someone for it, but why? It's poker? Bad beats happen on a hand to hand basis. So what if he rivered a card, it happens. Yeah, it might of been a stupid decison for him to call or push, but maybe he was just bluffing? If you don't want to lose, don't call or chance it unless you know you've won. But that's the great thing about poker, you take risks. In a recent tournement I was in, I had QA suited and was playing against a guy that raise 3x bb pre flop. I called and the flop came to Q 6 A. He pushes me all in, and of course I call. He flips over 88, and ends up rivering the 8 and knocking me out. If I lose a hand though, I lose with respect, because I know that that's poker, and things like that happen. He of course starts writing about how much of a moron I am and that I'm a huge donk. Really!!!? Pre flop, that's a toss up. It just amazes me the lack of knowlage and respect people have these days.
